Excerpt Details
Introduction: During an emergency, responders often have difficulties estimating the amount of oil leaking from a punctured tanker or barge. Adverse conditions (e.g., stormy weather, vessel instability) can significantly hamper the responders? ability to make measurements. When direct oil-loss measurements, such as tank soundings, are unavailable, volume estimates are often made from visual observations of the slick, a notoriously unreliable approach. A simple computer model that calculates leak rates would help the responder estimate the volume loss from a punctured tank....

Introduction: For coding and processing, the data required for geodetic vertical control (VERT data) have been divided into two sets. These are (1) observational data of elevation differences between survey points (OBS data) and (2) descriptive data including original and recovery descriptions (DESC data). Detailed instructions and formats for the coding and keying of the OBS and DESC vertical control data sets are contained in Chapter 6 and Annex P, respectively. The two data sets of each vertical control job must be submitted at the same time....

Summary: The Office of Charting and Geodetic Services (C&GS). National Geodetic Survey Division has completed the redefinition and readjustment of the North American Datum of 1927 (NAD 27), creating the North American Datum of 1983 (NAD 83). The interagency Federal Geodetic Control Committee (FGCC) affirmed NAD 83 is the official civilian horizontal datum for U.S. surveying and mapping activities performed or financed by the Federal Government. Furthermore, to the extent practicable, legally allowable and feasible, all Federal agencies using or producing coordinate information should provide for an orderly transition from NAD 27 to NAD 83....

Excerpt Details
Excerpt: Have been increasingly devastating. Estimated disaster losses in the United States range from $10 billion to $50 billion annually, with an average cost from a single major disaster around $500 million. One of the primary factors contributing to the rise in disaster losses is the steady increase in the population of high-risk areas, such as coastal areas. The population in coastal counties represents more than 54% of the total U.S. population, but occupies only 26% of the total land area. Coastal areas are particularly vulnerable to the effects of natural hazards....

Excerpt Details
Excerpt: Determine goals for restoration--what do you want to restore, (habitat, water quality, natural processes, etc.) And for whom or what (single species approach or ecosystem approach)? 2. Identify restoration priorities in the watershed of interest. This can be done by determining the factors that limit the existence of the particular feature you would like to restore and addressing those factors. For example, if fish populations in a watershed are limited by the availability of cool water temperatures, a major restoration priority may be to provide shade and more water to the stream, which in turn will help cool the water. 3. Form a Watershed Group--Meet with local landowners and area residents to exchange ideas and determine who may be interested in participating in watershed monitoring, historic and scientific background research and restoration projects......

Excerpt Details
Abstract: Velocities of elevation change for two time periods have been determined from Southern California leveling data. Two periods were selected for study: 1906 through 1962 and 1959 through 1976. The study area extends from San Pedro north to latitude 35.05, and between longitudes 1170 and 119.05. The shape of the fitted velocity surface for the latter epoch agrees with the original uplift established by Castle et al. (1976) with the exception that no eastern termination is evidenced within the study area, The velocity surface for the earlier time period shows negligible subsidence of 1 m/yr at Palmdale, increasing to 9m/year at Bakersfield. The 11 mm/year maximum uplift velocity determined for the period 1959 through 1976 is approximately twice the corresponding standard deviation. ' Weighted velocities, extracted from tides records at six stations on the coast, were used to provide input for absolute height change....

Excerpt Details
Excerpt: Water temperature data from several sites around the Great Lakes were obtained to determine if any regional climatic changes or trends could be detected based upon these data sets. The study was partially supported by the NOAA Office of Global Programs. Site selection was based upon location and reasonable data access. This technical memorandum contains data for Erie, PA from 1916-1992. Water temperature data are from Erie, Pennsylvania's Chestnut Street plant. The plant superintendent, Mr. John Presogna, facilitated data collation by arranging for some of his staff to enter the data into a computer compatible format. Data are available from 1916 to 1992. However, no data are available for 1956. A 60? pipe extends about 1.25 miles offshore from the Chestnut Street plant; the intake depth is 27-30' below the surface. Originally, the intake pipe was located in the Bay, but a new pipe was built in the early part of this century because of water quality concerns with respect to cholera. In 1908, the pipe was tunneled under the peninsula that forms the bay....

Excerpt: Warning from Coordination Meteorologist. Record summer flooding affected nearly all of the Red River of the North and Devils Lake drainage basins, including tributaries, through the summer of 2002. Of that summer?s five major outbreak events, there were four events where widespread heavy rains of from 5 to 15 inches (in 24-hours) affected multiple rain gages in networks spanning multiple counties. The first of these events began on June 9 and brought an abrupt halt to the spring drought which had already run though its early stages. The June 9-11 rains were also the most widespread (see figure 1), and induced significant overland flooding in portions of several northeast North Dakota and northwest Minnesota counties....

Excerpt: After Hurricane Isabel swept through the North Carolina coast on September 19, NGS spent the weekend taking photos of the changed coastline. The Category 2 storm created a new inlet near Cape Hatteras Village. In order to capture the extent of the shoreline alteration, NGS mounted a digital camera on the bottom of a NOAA Twin Otter aircraft. The camera, an Applanix-Emerge Digital Sensor System, has a built-in Global Positioning System, allowing each image to be geo-referenced. The images were taken at an altitude of 7,500 feet....

Introduction: Water temperature data from several sites around the Great Lakes were obtained as part of a study to determine if any regional climatic changes or trends could be detected based upon these data sets. The study was partially supported by the NOAA Office of Global Programs. Site selection was based upon both location and reasonable data access. This technical memorandum contains data for Bay City, Michigan from 1946-1993. Bay City water temperature data were provided by Mr. John DeKam, superintendent of the Bay City water plant. All data were hand entered into a computer compatible format. Data are available from 1946 to November 1993. However, no data are available for the following years: 1956-1966, and 1968. Prior to 1951 the water intake depth was 5 feet, and the crib was located at 43o 40.39'; 83o 53.86'. After 1951 the intake crib was moved to 43o 43.06'; 83o 54.06', and the water intake depth was lowered to 14 feet. The daily temperatures are based upon three readings taken every 8 hours. A certified thermometer was used for all readings since September 1979; I do not know if this is true for the entire data set....
